NYUPS May Meeting: Diving the Spice Islands
By Joseph Tepper, May 2, 2016 @ 06:42 PM (EST)

Two for one—that’s the kind of trip we all love. Recently, New York Underwater Photographic Society member and pro-shooter Patricia Jordan (aka PJ) returned from a trip to Indonesia where she had superb photographic experiences both below the waves and above.

At the May meeting of NYUPS (Monday, May 9th), Patricia will be sharing her images and stories from her recent trip to Ambon, Indonesia—also known as the “Spice Islands.” Here, she reveled in one of the most revered macro destinations. But that was only the beginning: From there Patricia boarded the Damai 1 liveaboard where she explored the Maluku Islands and the southern section of Raja Ampat. Highlights included the Blue “Water Mangroves” and aptly-named “Magic Mountain.”

To top it off, she witnessed a rare, total solar eclipse while not diving. She will be sharing the images of Dr. Richard Ebright of Rutgers University, along with his techniques for achieving them. Of course, Patricia will also discuss the underwater shooting techniques she used for wide angle, medium-sized subjects and macro critters.

As always, all NYUPS meetings are free to attend and all underwater photographers and divers in the NYC area are encouraged to attend. More details can be found on the NYUPS website.
